For a completely unproven QB - makes the $36 mil guaranteed the Steelers gave Ben look that much more like a wise investment.

Well, I hope for the Falcons' sake and their fans (Vick was not THEIR fault, he was Blanks') that Ryan works out. They could use some good fortune for a change.

Dayum! Thats 12 mill a year! More than Big Ben? I think Ben's proven that he's going to be great, but that's such a bargain with Ryan.

There REALLY needs to be a salary cap for rookie contracts. It's going to get higher and higher each year. The Falcons better hope Ryan pans out. What a stupid gamble, but then again, what can you expect from a franchise that hasn't had back to back winning seasons in it's whole history?

If you're going to be paid that kind of money, you better start and contribute right away.

That ... is way too much money.

Even if you're a top-5 pick, there's really only a 50-50 chance you'll ever be a good player in the pros. It's f***ing ridiculous to be throwing that kind of money around on draft picks.

And probably one of the reasons why a lot of bad teams stay bad. If your record is bad enough to get the top pick, you have to bet the franchise on whoever's available that year. I'd much rather have a pick somewhere around #10-15 every year.
